Abiodun Promises Assistance To Young Farmers, Investors

GOVERNOR Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has reiterated his administration’s dedication to supporting young farmers and investors in land clearing, preparation and mechanisation for agriculture, to ensure food security and, as well, reduce unemployment in the state.

The governor, who spoke in Abeokuta at the grand finale of the 37th Lisabi Day celebration, said the Anchor Borrowers Scheme in the state has nurtured over 40,000 agripreneurs.

Abiodun, who was represented by his deputy, Mrs Noimot Salako-Oyedele, emphasized that the theme of the celebration, ‘Encouraging Youth Entrepreneurship in Agric Business: Panacea for Solving Youth Unemployment in Egbaland,’ aligns with his commitment to empowering youths for agricultural growth.

He said: “Ogun State remains a major global producer of cassava, with strengths in cassava production, poultry farming, fish production, and animal husbandry.”

In his remarks, the Alake and paramount ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo acknowledged the success of the Lisabi festival, thanking Egba sons and daughters for their financial support.

He announced plans to empower Egba indigenes through Lisabi palliatives and educational support for students.
